The 2016 Heisman Trophy is up for grabs, with five nominees having a shot to go down in college football history.
- Lamar Jackson
Jackson was one of the most electrifying players in football this season, with 3,390 passing yards and 1,538 rushing yards, plus a combined total of 51 TDs. Lamar Jackson is my Heisman leader.
2. Deshaun Watson
Watson finished the season with almost 4,000 yards passing, totaling 3,914 yards with 37 TDs, and adding another 529 on the ground and 6 TDs, but he averaged 1.25 interceptions per game, with 15. For that, Deshaun Watson will not win the Heisman.
3. Baker Mayfield/Dede Westbrook
Mayfield had 3,669 passing yards with a TD/INT ratio of 38/8, and QBR of 91.6, while Westbrook totaled 70 receptions for 1,465 yards and 16 TDs. Both players struggled early in the season, which means neither will win.
